During a teleconference on Monday promoting the PGA Championship, which is being held at Oakland Hills in suburban Detroit in August, Tiger Woods was asked (perhaps by a Detroit-area reporter?) if he was rooting for Detroit or Pittsburgh in the Stanley Cup finals. Woods laughed, then replied, "I don't really care. Let's talk about the Dodgers. I don't think anybody really watches hockey anymore."
Of course, the ratings tell a different story: going into tonight's Game 6, this is the most-watched Cup final since 2002.
Tiger, sweetheart, run along now. Just keep standing out there looking pretty while playing your little stick game on the grass. Leave discussion of real sports to the grownups. -- Joe Guckin
